(NAPSI)—Recent retirees are looking to community organizations for meaningful ways to stay active and these organizations are tapping into the retirees' expertise by creating meaningful opportunities for them to contribute.

In addition to traditional roles like delivering meals or providing rides, community organizations are now looking to skilled volunteers for program development, mentoring, leadership coaching, tutoring and providing management assistance for nonprofit organizations.

With cuts in funding and the demand for critical services on the rise, volunteers help fill the void by sharing knowledge from their years of professional experience to help those in their community.

Volunteering is an excellent way to stay active, stay healthy and make a difference. If you are a recent retiree looking for new opportunities, find out how your skills might benefit community organizations in your area. To get connected with a local organization, contact the Eldercare Locator at (800) 677-1116.
